Soaring Toward a Hopeful Future

By Lauryn Cantrell, Staff Writer

Ascending the walls of The Phillips Collection are words of artist Georgia Saxelby’s interactive exhibition, “To Future Women”, breaking the metaphorical glass ceiling. As women read the encouraging words from female contemporaries, they reflect on the marches and movements that shaped the world for women.

The retrospective for camaraderie will be re-exhibited in twenty years, on Jan. 21, 2037, commemorating the 20th Anniversary of the historic 2017 Women’s March. Individuals are encouraged to contribute to the time capsule by sharing their stories and aspirations or posing questions by writing a letter to future women.

The exhibition is on display at the modern art gallery in Washington, D.C., until Feb. 14, 2018 and continues to rotate among various Capita- area institutions and galleries for six months.
